The Bill O’Rielly Factor is not a factor for you!
O’Reilly has finally been cut from Fox News, not for his racially charged commentary, but for a series of sexual harassment allegations; a common trait among some of those with high authority at Fox (i.e founder and former Chairman Roger Ailes).
Reports against O’Reilly were raised by Perquita Burgess, a black woman who worked as a clerical worker at Fox News, “hot chocolate” during her time at the network in 2008. O’Reilly would reportedly make her feel uncomfortable in other ways as well.
According to The Daily Mail, Attorney Lisa Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter that Burgess worked for another network back in 2008 but had a desk near O'Reilly's office, and claimed that he would refer to the African-American woman as 'hot chocolate' when he walked by during the day.
When Burgess appeared on The View, Sunny Hostin asks about the “hot chocolate” incident, Burgess described a moment when she was sitting in the plaza of her work building and O’Reilly passes her yelling,
“Hey, hot chocolate”
She stated to the Global Grind, “I didn’t respond. I was mortified because not only was it sexual, I took that as a very plantation-al remark.”
Burgess didn’t report her incidents to her employer, but she still vented about the situation via social media.
We are so glad that this aggressive predator is out of a job at Fox we can only pray that he does not gain an position with a man who feels he didn’t do anything wrong. Inside the oval office…
